Did You Know??

Globally, legislation against sexual harassment, rape and violence is present. However, it does not appear to be completely successful in protecting victims from sexual assault or violence. A common public sentiment is to impose stricter regulation and blame the statistics on a lack of education. However, rape and sexual harassment is not just a problem in places with low literacy rates. Nearly 20% of women in the U.S have been raped or have faced rape attempts.1 In Canada, 43% of women have experienced sexual harassment at work.2 The problem exists globally, where 1 in 14 women have been sexually assaulted by someone other than a partner.3 Sexual assault and harassment exists worldwide and is not geographically or culturally confined. These assaults can also take place within families or by people the victims trust, for instance, boyfriends or co-workers. It is a global disease that needs to come to an end.

How can women protect themselves and walk down the streets without fear? What can women do to ensure that they do not fall prey to perpetrators of sexual violence in a public place, at work or at home? I have had the honor of speaking with Qin YunQuan about this issue and how women can protect themselves in a world of growing danger.

    Greetings to you from Eden ministry Uganda. Thanks for the good work you are doing. I would like to partner with your organisation to support the many sexual workers in Uganda to come back home and start some small business.
